German term or phrase: gemeinsame fingernerven N8/9
Again from a letter describing hand surgery, anyone know exactly which nerves in English these are? I know it means common digital nerve, and that these nerves branch out to each side of the finger, but is there a specific name? Or is common digital nerve of the fourth finger sufficient? TIA

Good luck

From Medline:

...Nerve segments were harvested from 10 fresh cadavers (20 upper extremities). Five sites of nerve graft were harvested: lateral and medial antebrachial cutaneous nerves (LABCN, MABCN), posterior and anterior interosseous nerves (PIN, AIN), and sural nerves. Four sites of typical segmental nerve defects were harvested in a zone protocol: **common digital nerve** (zone 4), proper digital nerve (zone 3), digital nerve distal to main dorsal branch at the metacarpophalangeal joint (zone 2), and digital nerve distal to trifurcation at fingertip (zone 1).....
